Wisconsin Day @ AFSCME Convention

On Tuesday, July 15 a bus of AFSCME Activists from Madison, Milwaukee and Racine rode to the AFSCME International Convention in Chicago, IL. We wore our red Wisconsin AFL-CIO shirts and stood on the stage to hear from our next Governor, Mary Burke. Tuesday was a great show of our solidarity and strength in Wisconsin. 

Some pictures are posted on the International's website at: www.2014.afscme.org/photos

Unions are one of our only counterbalances to big corporations and the super rich who tilt the playing field in their favor so that they can hoard more and more of our nation's wealth.

Federal Court Rules in Laborers 236 v. Scott Walker Case

We are still waiting on the Wisconsin state supreme court to make a ruling on Act 10 overall. The case in today's news is NOT an overall ruling on Act 10. It is a court case in the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals between Laborers Local 236, AFL-CIO v. Scott Walker.


Today, a panel of federal judges ruled that "Act 10 does not infringe on the rights of government workers." This is an unfavorable descision.
